Secret Santa 2017

Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing day with family and friends.

My Secret Santa, Peter over at Baseball Every Night, generously blasted me with a wave of cardboard acetate goodness by knocking out the entire 1997 Metal Universe Blast Furnace insert set that I have been wanting ever since I discovered its existence!

These cards are smoking hot with a rough acetate surface, impressive poses, 90s goatees, eyeblack, and a healthy dose of HGH... I mean sunscreen.

My scanner goofed up there somewhere along the way...oh well. 

Thanks so much for the gift, Peter!

Merry Christmas!


  1. Wow, those are sharp looking cards. I missed a bunch of cool inserts from the 90s. Merry Xmas!

    1. I missed them too apparently. Now I’m trying to catch up! Merry Christmas!

  2. That is a really great looking insert set! Having not seen them before, I would imagine that it's one of those sets that looks even better in person.

  3. Peter gifted to me last year..good stuff! Acetate is always awesome

  4. Wow- what a great bunch of cards to be gifted!

  5. Oh! I'm so glad to see these cards featured here!
